Quirky Quilts Qld Class

Yesterday I taught my first class at my LQS Quirky Quilts here in Springwood.  It was a stitchery class for the stitchery on my Sweet Cupcake tote bag design.
I had a lovely group of ladies and I enjoyed their company.....
They all went away happy so that was very nice and hopefully I imparted some knowledge as well. Thank you ladies and QuirkyQuilts.
Sewing wise I am still working on Vicki Tucek's embroidery block for Splendid Sampler. It is such a pretty block and I am enjoying not rushing it.
I have also managed to decide on my Dutch Treat top fabric....
I am using my French General reds and some of their friends for the underneath fabric. Love red and cream quilts!
Hopefully it will work even though I am using a variety of different fabrics.
Sorry the photos are not better...bit of a yuk day here.
I have some lovely show and tell blocks from the Wednesday night girls but I will save them for next think I'm crazy! Lol! Wait until you see these blocks.
Ok! I am off out the door....enjoy your weekend.
If it doesn't nourish your soul ... let it go!

Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
